Hello everyone, I'm new to crunchyroll, I've had it almost 2 weeks. I've gotten through a couple of good animes and would like to get through a few more.
Here is a list of anime series I enjoy and why;
Dragon ball Z/Super - I love the action and I really love the characters, I enjy thier personalities, cliches and character development. Actually caring about the characters helps me like an anime.
Akame ga Kill - Another action heavy anime (I like action). I quite enjoy the whole secret powers stuff, this anime has sacred weapons. I again really liked the characters and began to care about their relationships.
Ushio and Tora - Another action anime with great characters I care about. I also really like the action in this one, again it has a sacred weapon which I like and the story is pretty good too.
Re:zero - Not so heavy on the action with this one but a really really fantastic story and great characters. I like the animation stype, while it's not particularly different to most other animes it's just has a lot of charm. I do like a little love interest in an anime but as long as it's a side plot and not the main story.
Seven deadly sins (Netflix) - This is one of my favourite animes. I absolutely loved the characters in this, especially the main guy, Meliotus, he's really likable and has an air of mystery. The story is pretty great too and I just like everything about this one!
Knights of Sidonia (Netflix) Another of my favourite animes. I initially got into this because of the action but as it went on I started to really like the characters and the story. The story is getting pretty in depth and there are a lot of unanswered questions. Some episodes were character centred and I actually really enjoyed these too.
Death Note: Just an great thriller with an amazing story. I dont think I need to go into much detail about why this one is so good. The writing is just fantastic and the lack of action is not a problem here.
Attack on Titan: Great action, great story and great characters. Again, this is a classic with excellent story telling and a very serious style. A classic for sure.
God eater - Another anime I like on here, good action, characters are okay. I've enjoyed what i've watched so far and think I'll get more into it as it goes on.
Ajin (netflix) - Cant remember the full title but a really great anime. This one has a really great story and great characters you really care about. These is some action but the character development and storytelling are what make this one great.
What I seem to enjoy; I like action primarily but I also love a good story and good characters, any two of these three attributes will make a good anime in my book, three would be fantastic.
So yeah, I'd really appreciate some suggestions and I'd highly recommend any of the series mentioned above. Death note and attack on titan are obvious must watch classics of the genre, Seven deadly sins is my personal favourite but is a little light hearted so may not be for everyone, knights of sidonia is a close second and i think most people would like this one.
Thank you for your suggestions and let me know if you have seen any of the above programs and what you think of them
Hunter x Hunter : fits perfectly with what you've listed.
Sword Art Online: If you haven't seen it yet, it fits well into your list. It tends to be a "love it or hate it" show, so if you don't like it, then drop it and move on.
Strike the Blood: Good action. Shorter series. than most you've listed. Bloody and a little cheesy at times, but fun if you don't mind that.
Fate/Stay Night -- Unlimited Blade Works : Of the Fate series, I've only seen UBW, but I liked it a lot: good characters, good action, nice dark plot. The three Fate series (Fate/Zero, F/SN, UBW) more-or-less stand alone, so it doesn't so much matter what order you watch them in.
Gargantia of the Verdererous Planet: Really good mecha series--and I say this as someone who doesn't love mecha.
Monogatati Series (starts with Bakemonogatari): Relatively little action here; this one is about the story-telling. Plot is mostly a supernatural mystery/horror, with an ecchi harem thrown in just for kicks. But watch it for the characters, the dialogue, and the artistry.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Hunter x Hunter
Space Patrol Luluco
Ghost In The Shell
Neon Geneses Evangelion
Gurren Lagann : available on Netflix with the english dub, but I highly recommend watching it in Japanese
Fate Zero : if you want to watch Fate Stay Night, watch Zero first, it explains the lore really well, also the protagonist in the sequel, Unlimited Blade Works, is a really "love him or hate him" kind of character, so it's more likely you'll enjoy Zero more.
Hunter X Hunter : fits perfectly with what you are looking for, it has really well written characters and very intense and strategic action.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure : if you don't mind watching something that was written in the 80's, then you're going to love this show, especially if you like over the top action. JoJo has some of the most entertaining characters in anime, and also one of the best and more well known villains in the industry as well.
I dream for a day when ONE and Trigger make an anime together
Over the top action
Kill la Kill
Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma - A competitive cooking show that can hold its own against other action shows. Do not watch on an empty stomach.
Shows that are not what they appear to be at first glance
Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Looks like a sweet innocent magical girl show but is actually dark fantasy / borderline horror.
YUKI YUNA IS A HERO - Looks like a cgdct slice of life show but is actually a pretty dark action show.
SCHOOL-LIVE! - This show is most defenitly NOT what it appears to be at first glance. Can't go into detail without going into major spoilers. Just watch ALL of the first episode.
Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA - Half magical girl parody, half action show. First season episode 6 had one of the top ten fights of 2013.
Chaika the Coffin Princess
Blade and Soul
Fantastic Detective Labyrinth
The Severing Crime Edge
Irregular at Magic High
If Her Flag Breaks
Read or Die
Dusk-maiden of Amnesia
Valvrave the Liberator
Linebarrels of Iron
World Conquest Zvezda Plot
All have at least 2 of the 3 things you ask for (IMHO) and all are here on Crunchyroll.
